1997 Dodge power steering box

I am putting my son's 97 dodge pickup components in a 34 Dodge 2 ton. Engine, transmission and steering column. I would like to use his power steering box but I need the control arm to the front not the back. To the front it steers opposite which we know won't work. I need a reverse box but don't know for sure how to do that. A new one is ok but I don't know what to look for. I have used a 76 dodge camper sub frame on the old dodge frame. I do have the camper power steering box but am unsure if I can use it with the 97 pump. It is a 97 dodge 360. I am not new to restorations but this is my first custom. Fabricating is fun but kinda nerve racking.
I have attached a photo of where I am now to help peek interest.
Thanks for any help.

180 the pitman arm so it is facing backward(6 instead of 12oclock) then use crossover steering on a angle.

Thanks for your reply. I am using the 97 and it is pointed back. I have ordered a drop pitman arm and believe it will get it down enough that I can use this box and have correct steering.
